Will you be waiting when I get there?
Will you be just behind the door?
Will it be as it was before you left?
Wanting hugs and begging for more?
I remember the way you’d greet me,
Your joy knew no bounds.
I’d scoop you up and hold you close,
For us, no one else was around.
But that was before you left me,
And that is all in the past.
That was before I lost you
To death’s cold and merciless grasp.
But I have faith, and I believe
That somewhere in God’s plans,
You play and watch and wait for me,
In a Never-Never Land.
A land of trees and balmy air,
Where others, just like you,
Are waiting very patiently,
For those who loved them, too.
Dear one, I’ll be there, don’t you fear,
Though it may take a while.
I’ll cross that Rainbow Bridge with you,
Together, we’ll walk that mile
